Property owners are not suspects in the Sugar Island break-ins according to Haliburton Highlands OPP Constable Paul Potter.

DNA evidence was obtained by the Forensic Identification Unit from the scene of several break-and-enters that occurred on Gull Lake last month. The results could help identify who is responsible for the offences.

Potter also said police are waiting for confirmation from the Fire Marshall about the cause of a “suspicious fire” at an eight location on the island. He says police cannot confirm if the fire is connected to the break-ins. Investigations are still ongoing.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact your local dispatch or Crime Stoppers.
